The Story

Bilberry: Vaccinium myrtillus (L.) 

Why Bilberry Leaf? Closely related to blueberries, bilberries are high in beneficial flavonoids. Bilberry leaf is also an excellent support for vision health, and has also been known to support healthy digestion and oral health.

Quality Assured: This herb is Certified Organic by Oregon Tilth and grown without the use of genetic engineering, artificial fertilizers, or pesticides. Our experts here at the Apothecary Shoppe personally evaluate every herb through taste, touch, and smell to assure that you are receiving the best botanicals suitable for clinical use.

How to Use

Wellness Support: Bilberry leaf can be used to support a number of body systems, particularly vision. Additionally, bilberry is often used internally to support healthy blood glucose levels already in the normal range and smooth, healthy skin.

Cautions and Contraindications: Do not use bilberry while also on insulin therapy as evidence suggests an effect on blood glucose levels.

Experience

Formula:

BILBERRY LEAF TEA:

Bilberry Vaccinium myrtillus: 1 teaspoon

Filtered water: 1 cup

Place your herbs into a ceramic or glass teapot. 
Bring the water to a boil. Do not use an aluminum pot. Turn off the heat and pour the water over the herb. Cover the pot and let steep for five to 10 minutes. Strain the tea in a non-aluminum strainer and then drink. Use immediately. Do not store. 

Honey, lemon, or milk can be added, although milk tends to mask the delicate flavors. Do not use honey with infants younger than one year old as there have been reports of botulism spores in honey and this can be fatal in infants.
